Ahh! Winter, It is the season for warm clothes, hot tea and a cool mind. It is also a time when the fabrics that make up your wardrobe become more important than ever. Our goal number one should be to protect ourselves from cold climates. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun with winter fashion. ( If you are clueless which fabric is warmest in winter? then read our previous post by clicking here )
In my past, I didn’t really know how to keep ourselves warm in winter… I simply cranked up the heater up in my room while this may be viable solution to some folks, it’s not a solution when you’re living off the grid or are working outside all day! The only solution I’ve found to keep my core body temperature up during all points of the day is to learn how to effectively layer our clothes for winter weather. If you don’t layer your clothes correctly, you’ll either end up feeling uncomfortable and cold.
It’s always hard to stay fashionable in extreme weather, especially when you’re experiencing colder than normal temperatures. But not to worry – luckily, there are ways to stay warm while still looking great! start with a warm base layer, add on insulator, then top with outerwear and accessories.
Without further ado, today’s update begins right now. ( here is what I have learned with what little experience I have and tips from books I have read )
How To Not Let The Cold Winter Weather Affect Your Style
The main purpose of bottom layer is to help you remain dry. If your bottom layer doesn’t keep you dry, your skin will eventually become cold. Your bottom layer might consists of Silk underwear, a merino wool turtleneck, and thin leggings that will keep you warm without making you sweat. Keep your bottom layer tight because tight fitting clothing will retain heat. Avoid wearing Cotton clothes next to your skin when you sweat because Cotton will retain the moisture, creating a damp layer against your skin which will make you fell more cold. Invest in Wool because it keeps you warm and dry all day. If you’re worried about Wool fabric making you itch, try the Merino variety instead. It’s much softer and much comfortable than regular Wool.
The middle layer works as your insulator. The middle layer may keep you warm, but it may cause you overheat. So being able to take off layers is very important in the winters. Try wearing a button down shirt over your base layer, since these are easy to take off and one more option is to wear a lightweight sweater that you can easily pull off if you get too warm. Invest in Fleece, Wool and Flannel fabric materials because they’ll keep you warm but they’re breathable so you’re less likely to get overheated. Wear heavy pants like jeans because lightweight materials of pants like Nylon will not keep you warm, even if you’re wearing multiple layers. Protect your feet with thick and long socks.
You don’t have to sacrifice your style just because the weather is cold. Use your accessories to add a personal touch to winter wear. Try wearing a beautiful pair of gloves, a great hat, or a colorful scarf with a full length coat. Make sure that it’s waterproof and windproof. Go with Nylon or Down jacket. Wear heavy and tight pants such as jeans because there are lot of styles out there flared, skinny, and so on.
You don’t need five layers of Wool sweaters to prepare for the winter climates because “Less is more during winter”. You only need about three layers made with specific fabrics, just remember that the more heavy layers you have, the colder you’ll feel. There are ways to stay warm while still looking great! start with a warm base layer, add an insulator, then top with outerwear and accessories.
